Best mechanical keyboard for 20 euros

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Can someone give me some good mechanical keyboard for 20 euros or 5 extra more ?
All that i want to have is to have comfortable keys for typing, and backlighting keys, so it could be easier to type in dark.
Thanks

Ha,ha,ha.

20 euros you get the cheap rubber dome keyboards
If you find a model M from an old granny, then it's possible.

check out Ebay etc for a compaq MX-11800.

yes they have a bit of an odd lay out, but they are cherry MX brown switches.

Saw 2 go on Ebay uk for under £15 each

Get a Model M. They're old and have no Windows key (no one uses one anyways, and you can remap it to Caps Lock or something like me) but they're dirt cheap and I love buckling springs way more than Cherry switches.

No one uses it? Are you kidding me? Unless you are a mouse guy keyboard cowboys use the windows key. There are too many shortcuts with it. I really miss my windows key on my IBM M13. In fact I am looking at getting a new mechanical keyboard but am not sure which model to get.

I got two Compaq MX 11800s for $20 each. Very rarely, though.
